The Living World has many more stories to tell and it looks like a Guild Wars 2 job posting is seeking someone to hire for that purpose. A tweet by narrative producer and narrative lead Bobby Stein has announced the oportunity for anyone who has the chops to write for the MMORPG.
As one would perhaps expect, qualifications for the position are high, including expert-level dramatic writing skills with “a substantial track record of demonstrated proficiency in both games and at least one other narrative medium”. That said, the job is a full-time on-site position at the game’s offices in Bellevue, Washington.
The job posting doesn’t provide any sort of clues as to the narrative direction of Guild Wars 2, but according to the responsibilities of the narrative designer, the new hire will be kept pretty busy overall.
If you happen to be among the highly qualified, then you can submit your application. Otherwise, Mr. Stein rather kindly wrote a helpful and frank thread for those who aspire to write for video games.
Not a barn-burner of a job posting, but all the same we’re eager to see that ArenaNet is ready to start the process of writing the next steps of the plot for Guild Wars 2. If anyone reading this happens to have put in an application, we wish you the best of luck.
